Did you know that the industry standard for the return lip on a piece of strut is 7.5mm (- /+0.5mm)?

And only reliable, safe, high performing strut meeting BS 6946-1988 is the required choice for many UK projects.

The good news is that all #Shawston stocked channel not only meets these standards, but all of our strut is also LUL approved and produced in the UK by one chosen manufacturer.

Is it time you checked your strut?

Big congratulations to Andrew Mckew the Warehouse Manager at Hyde who won the longest putt competition on our #EO day celebrations with a whopping 65m shot.

#Shawston are incredibly proud to be an Employee Owned business because it creates a common sense of purpose for us all. It means that when we come together – either for a fun celebration like EO day or to focus our efforts on solving a business challenge – we do it brilliantly, with a values and principles based approach, and an absolute focus on People First.

Well done Andrew Mckew!
